The Clash are on the cover of this week’s NME, and to celebrate we’ve complied a playlist of our top 20 punk songs.
Featuring The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, X, The Buzzcocks, Dead Kennedys and many more, here are some of our favourite tunes to be defiant to, whilst summoning up enough spittle to create a massive loogie and pretending not to notice your mohawk has slightly fallen off to the left a bit.
It hard to choose just one tune, but my Top Three are Patti Smith’s ‘Gloria’, The Cramps’ ‘Human Fly’ and The Modern Lovers’ ‘Roadrunner’, songs which show how versatile and original the genre was (and still is).
What’s your favourite punk track? Let us know below. Here are a few of our favourites as a playlist. What would you add?
We’ve also made a collaborative Spotify playlist, which you can add your own favourites too.
